How would you feel if you couldn't do anything right? That is how the little girl in the book, The Magic Locket, felt. Will the magic locket her Great Aunt Emma gave to her help her with her math or even teach her how to keep toothpaste on her toothbrush? Read the book and find out!

There is a picture on every page that showed as much as the words. They were drawn in pencil, and colored softly. The pictures were detailed and realistic. My favorite character was Aunt Emma. I liked her because she was kind to the little girl and helped her overcome her clumsiness. I liked the book because it taught you a lesson about how to believe in yourself.

I'd recommend this book to anyone that likes a little magic mixed into a great story.
